Rippon, Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Finally a new Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that has personality! What sets it apart is that the typical pungent tropical fruit flavours have been replaced by elegant lime and grapefruit, with just a subtle gooseberry hint. The small percentage of oak ageing adds texture and creaminess, and it is showing real finesse, with plenty of minerality and depth.
